apple to help the fbi break into an i-phone belonging to one of the killers in the san bornadino shootings. the ruling gives the fbi a possible victory in its battle with apple over the government's ability to get ahold of encrypted data, and give it over to investigators. this is the deal. apple's ceo tim cook says the company will oppose the ruling. apple says providing the keys, if you will, to its technology would compromise the security of the information of millions of users. prosecutors say, though, the con tents of the phone could provide important evidence the attackers before the shooting. and who those other people are is the important part as wall. what do you think about it? should apple cooperate and unlock that phone, or no: once you do it for one, who else can get those keys? slippery slope potentially. starting off first with kate out of new york. kate, what do you think? do you think this is one of be really easy.
7:48 am
we need to get to the bottom of it, potentially find other people involved, open up that i-phone? what do you think? . >> absolutely. i get so angry and appalled when i hear of stories like this of individuals that will promote our security nationally. as a mother, i want everybody -- in this country so we know where everybody is. it's just a case of egomaniacs thinking their individual rights is more important than the collective. >> glenn, do you agree? >> well sort of. you're allowed to have your individual right to privacy until you can prove to a judge or, in this case the government can, they have a case. so in this case, apple should go ahead and open up the phone for them. but that doesn't mean they have to give the key to the fbi. just open up the phone, and give the fbi the information. by the way, hackers sooner or later will figure out how to hack in with or without apple's cooperation.
7:49 am
this case, they want the back door to one phone. not all phones; one phone. what do you think? . >> when you can have a back door to one phone, you can have a back door to all phones. they in essence asked the company to change the way the software operates. ''those who would give up essentially liberty to purchase a little safety deserve neither liberty nor safety," said by benjamin franklin. i disagree with what the government is trying to do in this case. it is not just one terrorist; it is the security of the state, privacy, and everybody in the world that uses apple product. >> and most of the world, or i would say 80% of the world -- maybe that's too big a number -- uses apple product. we would love to hear what you have to say. post your comments on our facebook page. well if you suffer from
